My research focuses on trustworthy decision making and AI, networking, and security. I am particularly interested in measuring, managing, and using trust among various interacting actors, such as humans-machines, or machines-machines, to develop better decision-making systems in important fields including security, healthcare, networks, finance, managing physical and computing resources, and so on.

His current research interests include network architectures, heterogeneous wireless networks, security, QoS routing protocols, traffic management, optical and satellite networks, and bio-computing.
